Forum: web Subject: Re: Domainsponsor.com erasing prior archived copies of 135,000+ domains

@CoJaBo:
you wrote - "As Domainsponsor buys expired domains for resale"
I would like to point out that the URL's bought buy Domainsponsor do not come furnished with the Copyright Protected Intellectual Property once used on the URL's; Domainsponsor only bought the domain name NOT the content.
NetflixDOTcom, do you really think that if the company gave up the URL and it was bought buy Domainsponsor all the content used on netflix would be owned by Domainsponsor? Or that because the Internet Archive made copies of the content directly from netflix's website the Internet Archive can somehow claim ownership?

It's pointless emailing Domainsponsor or the admins of this website for answers regarding material's rightfully owned by other people.

RE: The Internet Archive's policy and Robots.txt, who cares really? People write crazy things into company policies on a daily basis.

This website however does not delete materials simply because a webmaster placed a Robots.txt file their site, this website only blocks or excludes the content from 'public view'.

I still do not understand how, exactly, this is relevant. The issue I've brought up is about a company that, knowingly or not, is removing tens of millions of potentially useful pages from the internet archive. This has nothing to do with intellectual property- if you want to discuss IP issues, please start a new thread for it.

What's relevant is the content CoJaBo. This website (the Internet Archive) should have asked for permission in the first place; before making copies of websites owned and operated by other people. Whether the pages collected are/were "potentially useful" is irrelevant.

Your argument suggests all libraries should be closed.
As a researcher I would prefer a copy of the domains are maintained out of reach of the history revisers.
